Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, January 6, at Morehart Mortuary Chapel with Pastor Andy Rodgers officiating.

Joyce E. Posey was born June 25, 1932, in Rotan, Texas, to G.B. Posey and Lillian Stanley Posey. On October 6, 1946, she married Garland Leonard Gray in Breckenridge. Joyce was a cook for Breckenridge Independent School District for many years. Her community was blessed by her culinary talents as she shared her delicious meals, filling not just stomachs but hearts with warmth and joy. Her unwavering faith and commitment to God were the guiding lights of her life, inspiring all who knew her. A true steward of God’s creation, Joyce found solace in feeding the birds and animals around her. The simple act of nurturing God’s creatures reflected her deep appreciation for the beauty of life in all its forms. Her legacy lives on in the countless lives she touched, leaving behind a trail of love and goodwill. As we mourn her physical absence, let us celebrate the life of a remarkable woman whose faith, love and culinary delights will forever be cherished in our hearts. May she find eternal peace in the loving embrace of our Lord.
